I was just wondering if the RAM chips on the Voodoo2 are compatible with the Voodoo1 boards.
The Voodoo2 often uses faster RAM (~25ns compared to up to 50ns on many V1 models), which could potentially improve the V1 performance in some situations.
Yes, I know I could just use a V2, but suppose I ~really~ like V1 cards and had a spare broken V2 just lying around and didn't want to let it go to waste.
It would also be interesting to see if there's any performance gain when modding a Voodoo1 card to 8MB. I mean, using a 4MB Monster1 with +4MB 50ns chips from another Monster1 versus using a Monster1, removing the 4MB 50ns RAM and replace it with 8MB 25ns from a Voodoo2.
Is there an Option to overclock the RAM on a Voodoo1? I don't really remember anything...
Which poses the question: Is there a potential performance gain from having better access times but no faster RAM clock?
